Poachers Kill Orangutan Mothers So They Can Sell Their Babies As Pets

Baby orangutan rescued from family who kept him in a cage.
Mother orangutans on the Indonesian island of Sumatra are being murdered so their babies can be sold as illegal pets to the rich and powerful. 

Although it is illegal in Indonesia to keep an orangutan as a pet, there are some who keep them in cages at their homes as a ‘status symbol’. 

There have so far been no prosecutions of those who keep orangutans as pets, with campaigners stating this is due to keepers often being ‘people of power’. 
 Baby orangutan rescued from family who kept him in a cage.
BBC News 

Orangutans in the Indonesian Leuser rainforest are said to be increasingly vulnerable due to habitat destruction over the last two decades, with infrastructure projects, palm oil and farmland destroying the forest. 

This devastation has brought them in closer proximity to humans, with black market traders taking advantage of this by slaughtering orangutan mothers to steal their babies. 

Rescue charities in Sumatra are now working to rescue these stolen babies, and to hold those who keep them as pets to account. 

New footage from the BBC tells the story of Bom Bom, a young orangutan who was sold on the black market after his mother was murdered. 


Bom Bom’s keepers – a police officer and his wife – kept him in a cage for three years, allowing him out only on weekends. The footage shows Bom Bom being taken from his keepers to a rehabilitation center where he will be prepared for life as a wild orangutan. 

The police officer’s wife shows visible distress as Bom Bom is taken away, describing the wild animal as her ‘child’. Bom Bom too is initially frightened when he is taken away, but is later seen looking more relaxed, extending his paw towards conservationists. 

Dr Ian Singleton, from the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation  Programme, told the BBC: 

''A mother orangutan will carry an infant around for almost 24 hours a day for several years so there’s no way she is going to voluntarily hand over that infant or allow anyone to take it unless she’s killed. ''

''She’s always going to defend that infant with her life and unfortunately that’s what usually happens. All the orangutans that are here [at the rehabilitation centre]…their mothers [were] almost certainly killed. ''

According to estimations given by Save The Orangutan, an estimated 6,000 great apes are captured or slaughtered annually due to those who sell them as pets on the black market. 

Up to 70 per cent of these apes are said to be orangutans.

  4. Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of cancer and my aunt and her husband were cured of herpes by Dr Udi who uses natural herbs to cure different kind of illness. Even Dr.Udi proved to the whole world countless times that natural herbs can cure all diseases and he cured countless of people using natural herbs. I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbs it will only get you cured from what you being so why don't you give herbs a try and see it effectiveness  Contact or email Dr Udi (Drudiherbalhome@gmail.com) (phone/whatsap no): +2348051243538.   visit his website
